Far Cry, Coburg, Germany, circa 2002. Being very politely asked by a nice German developer to please stop repeatedly shooting an NPC in the crotch and giggling at the physics. Podium dancing to vanilla ice. Incredible beer. My first encounter with a Republican. A man in a catsuit sadly showing a room full of people his genital piercing.
